"We still don't know who'll play the Clásico, but the trio of Messi-Suárez-Neymar could do serious damage in attack. We'll see on the day, but sparks might fly," said Mathieu.
"Suarez could go far, that's why he's come here. On the pitch, in training, it's clear he's aiming for great things. He's hungry to start for Barcelona."
On Messi he added: "It's what I like about great players. It could all go to their heads because they've won everything but he's quite the opposite."
